Huila is known to produce some of the highest quality coffees that come out of Colombia. This pink bourbon offers a compelling example that explains why coffee from this region are sought after. Finca Monteblanco, run by Rodrigo Sanchez, is a smaller farm at just eighteen hectares. Rodrigo is a 4th generation coffee farmer and his family bought Monteblanco in 2013. Rodrigo grows at least seven varieties of coffee, six of which are mystery varieties he discovered after purchasing the farm.

Rodrigo employs six pickers who specialize in harvesting only the perfectly ripe cherries. After harvest, coffees are processed with extreme care. Rodrigo does natural, honey, and washed processing at Monteblanco, as well as a few experimental processes. One such experiment includes fermentation in a freezer—indeed, Rodrigo’s farming practices are revolutionizing the coffee industry at large. Drying takes place on covered drying beds and then the coffee is moved to an African style drying bed to complete drying. All of the intense care and precision put into this coffee translate into a profoundly sweet cup with intricate notes of currant, cantaloupe and milk chocolate.
